Review: WiimoteSkins

Review: WiimoteSkins

Modding skills not up to par? Don’t feel like dissecting your controller to make it look like an 8-bit NES controller, have no fear WiimoteSkins.com has released a whole bunch of very carefully designed skins that fit the Wiimote like a glove. When I first heard about “stickers” for my Wiimote or console I was immediately put off, I didn’t […]

BusinessWeek “Wii: One Ferocious Underdog”

Virtual Reality in Your Living Room What makes it so outstanding? It boils down to Nintendo’s (NTDOY) decision to focus on how games are played, rather than the glitz and glitter of the games themselves. The company’s innovative motion-sensitive Wii Remote controller truly creates the closest thing you’ll get on a home system to virtual reality. Always thought you could […]

IGN Gives Zelda: Twilight Princess a 9.5

IGN Gives Zelda: Twilight Princess a 9.5

IGN’s Conclusion: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is, in my opinion, the greatest Zelda game ever created and one of the best launch titles in the history of launch titles – second only, perhaps, to the at-the-time ground-breaking Super Mario 64. It is also one of the finest games I have ever played. The experience is made better and […]

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Video Preview)

6:00 minute video preview in the style of the “Zelda Retrospectives”. By far the best explanation of the gameplay, story, feeling, and overall sense of what the game actually delivers. That voice over guy is good. yf1bO-WdjHU

Red Steel: Review

Red Steel: Review

From GoNintendo First up, I want to say that Red Steel is a lot of fun. I honestly have to attribute this to the Wii’s controller. I can’t see the game being this much fun with a more traditional game controller. It seems to be a running theme with the Wii. Every game I play seems to make me burst […]

CNN: Nintendo Wii – Funny name, fun system

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — If nothing else, you have to give Nintendo points for courage. When competitors decided to zig as the next generation of video game systems came along, Nintendo zagged — and that gutsy decision may well give it an enormous market share boost in the coming years.

Digital Trends gives the Wii a VERY thorough review

Digital Trends gives the Wii a VERY thorough review

Serious gaming enthusiasts can subtract about 0.2-0.5 points from our official review score for the first six months. But come late 2007, you can add that back and then some. A fantastic effort that you’ll have to try firsthand to believe, the Wii finally sees Nintendo return to form. And, potentially, as the company’s claimed it’s planned on doing for […]
